Massage Connection Anatomy & Physio 2ND Editionby Kalyani Premkumar
Synopses & Reviews
Created specifically for massage therapy students, the Third Edition of Anatomy & Physiology: The Massage Connection elucidates anatomy and physiology with clear, concise language complemented by an extraordinary multilayer art program. Organized to cover each body system and align with current massage therapy curricula, topics have been streamlined so that those areas critical for massage therapy—such as the musculoskeletal system—receive special coverage, whereas excessive detail in areas not relevant for massage is omitted. This edition also delivers a host of review activities in addition to a blockbuster ancillary package of online tools and complementary resources.
Anatomy & Physiology: The Massage Connection is just that—the link between the science of medicine and the art of massage as well as a bridge for students to a successful career in massage therapy.

Premkumar (U. of Calgary and Mount Royal College, Canada) has 20 years of teaching experience. Written for massage therapy students, instructors, practitioners, and policy makers, her text has been substantially reorganized based on feedback from users of the first edition. It now contains an introductory chapter, followed by 11 chapters each focusing on one body system, with important pathology topics and relevant case studies incorporated into the individual chapters. The color has been significantly heightened in the illustrations, and the text is produced in hardcover for greater durability. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
